Grace Day

Open Your Bible

Isaiah 25:9

Advent is a season to intentionally slow our pace, contemplating and celebrating the first coming of Christ while also anticipating His promised return. Take time today to pause from the busyness of the season to catch up on your reading, make space for prayer, and rest in the presence of the Lord. 

Revisit “Advent Rhythms” on pages 18–19 to help reorient your rhythms of rest and celebration.

On that day it will be said,
“Look, this is our God;
we have waited for him, and he has saved us.
This is the LORD; we have waited for him.
Let’s rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”
—Isaiah 25:9

    @Michelle, I am just now reading your comment from yesterday. You don’t happen to be in the upstate of SC do you? Because wow. Hi. It’s me. I feel the same way. I am also 30, wanting to make new friends in my town, but at the same time thinking, is it worth the effort because I might move… I am an enneagram 4 and I think you just explained every enneagram 4s heart lol. The longing for deep meaningful relationships, but it takes a lot of energy out of you, so maybe just wait til the next move, the forever home. God has been speaking to me quite a while now to “grow where I am planted”, aka make the effort here. I want to join an in person womens bible study group up here, but again, I haven’t made the effort. So, if not you Michelle if any other She’s live in my area let me know!

    Thank you Kelly NEO for remembering my nephew Brandon in your prayers. My sister has no updates but had a fun time with little James last week at a park. He’s thriving with his Mimi who has raised him since infancy. I love this advent study especially Thursday’s scriptures and devotional on rest. God blessed my daughter and I with rest as we got thru covid for the first time. It was 2 weeks of feeling tired and coughing but also resting for me with the Lord. Angie Mills,I loved what you posted on Thursday. Praying for many requests and for your loved ones.

    Let us pray that we will be able to say we have faithfully waited for the return of our Lord. May we not grow weary. May we not become discouraged. May we daily see the goodness of the Lord who never leaves us or forsakes us. May we hear His still small voice more clearly in the waiting. May we be still and know that He is God, reigning over all. Yesterday, today forever.

    Happy Saturday she sisters! The Advent study book has a lovely quote from Dietrich Bon Hoffer that I thought I would share, “The Advent season is a season of waiting, but our whole life is an Advent season, that is, a season of waiting for the last Advent, for the time, when there will be a new heaven, and a new earth.“
